Subject: DCC version 1.3.82/2.3.82 released

Version 1.3.82 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.82 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

1.3.82 differs from 1.3.81 by the single line fix for the automagic
upgrade of old /var/dcc/map files reported by James Carlson and
Earl Killian.  The bug was new with 1.3.81.

The changes for 1.3.81/2.3.81 include:

    improve SMTP status messages from dccm and dccifd
    improve dbclean handling of less frequent spam
    do something like `dbclean -F` on systems that lack mmap(MAP_NOSYNC).
	This should help recent versions of Linux that thrash themselves
	much as Solaris always has.
    perhaps fix the "Deadlock situation detected/avoided" messages long
	but infrequently seen on Solaris.
    fix a bug reported by Edward Toton in the mechanism that works around a
	missing cron-dccd cron job.
    fix problem in cron-dccd reported by Dean Maluski when a greylist server
	is running but no DCC server.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and
install the commercial or free version, depending on the .updatedcc_pfile
file, unless you have installed a version of Linux with the broken
default `sort` collating sequence since last upgrading.  If so, an
easy way to get the old updatedcc script working is to delete the
entire /var/dcc/build/dcc directory before running updatedcc.
